Where Innovation Thrives

There is no geography of innovation at Pacific Standard magazine.

Theme: Innovation geography.

Subject Article: "What Still Makes Silicon Valley So Special."

Other Links: 1. "The Urban Tech Revolution."
2. "The Question is Moot."
3. "How Competition Saved New York."
4. "Searching for Silicon Valley in the Rust Belt: The Evolution of Knowledge Networks in Akron and Rochester."
5. "Cultural diversity and entrepreneurship: Evidence from England and Wales."
6. "Diversity Cult."

Postscript: Dense cities are not innately more innovative geographies. New ideas don't necessarily love old buildings. A lot of folklore out there dressed up as academic analysis resulting in lazy and lousy economic development policy.
